    I have a very simple question. Does the number of computers connecting to a router have an affect on how fast my internet goes? My concern is that having too many connections may have an effect on the slow internet speed I was experiencing for a week or so ever since another person arrived into my house (with another computer connection to my router). I found it quite a coincidence, but I want to make sure it is true before I start going on a rampage.

    Yes it does and i'm experiencing the same phenomenon. I make my connection the priority + with all ports forwarded so I get the larger peice of the pie which is the total bandwidth available. But this problem is temporary, as soon as the n standard gets going there will not only be more networks available but faster ones, much faster. And of course as a result, LAN will become more popular. The Standard after N which is actually currently in development concentrates the rays using a dynamic laser which gives 30gbps connections at worst and the range is in the miles, thousands of miles. But this is about 30 years off until it becomes commercially available. Before then, it will of been implemented into all of NASA's current and future technologies mainly for interplanetary HD video streaming.
